    Default WABA in the Wild – Please support my fundraising!

    Hi,

    This is a fundraising letter asking you to donate to WABA as part of my WABA in the Wild ride on the C&O canal (Cumberland, MD to the District) in October. One hundred percent of what I raise goes to the Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA).

    If you don’t need to read any further – that’s great! Please go to www.waba.org/dana-bres and donate. Thanks.

    WABA in the Wild differs from other rides because I am paying the costs of the ride separately – that means 100% of your donation directly supports WABA. The ride will be three days and 180 miles along the canal tow path, more unpaved riding than I’ve ever done.

    We rely on WABA to expand and improve the bicycle infrastructure that benefits us all. More bike lanes and trails helps reduce the number of cars on the road, so WABA helps motorists as well. While WABA gets funding from local governments for many activities like training and trail rangers, those funds can’t be used for advocacy. That makes unrestricted donations, like yours, that much more valuable.

    Every rider has a goal of $1,000 but I think we can do better. To that end, I will match (dollar for dollar) donations I receive up to the $1,000 level! That doubles the impact of your donations for WABA. Your tax-deductible donations can be made www.waba.org/dana-bres. WABA is a 501(c)(3) organization.

    We all support cycling as we can. WABA has become the region’s premier advocacy organization for cycling and this is an opportunity to help sustain those efforts.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    I appreciate your support.

    Dana

    I'm disappointed that there was not thermometer thing to track progress. Hopefully Kitty didn't tap everyone out.

    If she did, I'll put the squeeze on her to make more cookies. That would certainly turn out better for the people that consumed them.

    Donated! I hope you get to your goal soon. And I agree that cookies always help encourage additional donations. Especially when you bring them to Tuesday Crystal City Coffee Clubs

    I did. Offers of beer would have been a good idea. We've all had plenty of cookies at this point.

    I'm game to bring beer to the Crystal City Coffee Club if someone will drink it.

    HERESY! There is no such thing as "plenty of cookies". There is always room for more cookies.
